Rays' Willy Adames: Running hot since All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames, who went 3-for-4 with two doubles in a loss to the Yankees on Tuesday, is 8-for-22 with four doubles, an RBI, a stolen base and two runs in the five games he's suited up since the All-Star break.

Adames' pair of two-baggers Tuesday pushed his July tally to four, exactly a quarter of his doubles total for the season. The current hot stretch is helping resurrect Adames' key offensive numbers after he opened the month going 2-for-27 with 13 strikeouts across seven pre-All-Star-break contests.

Rays' Willy Adames: Productive in narrow win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a win over the Yankees on Monday.

Adames' multi-hit effort was his second over the first four games he's suited up for in the second half. The young shortstop's fantasy managers are looking for an offensive turnaround for Adames after he appeared to be trending upward as June concluded. The 23-year-old had boosted his average another 11 points to .253 during the month, but that number has been on a quick descent thus far in July. Even factoring in Monday's effort, Adames is just 7-for-45 in 11 games since the calendar flipped, already prompting a 14-point tumble in his average and a 21-point drop in his on-base percentage.

Rays' Willy Adames: Heads to bench for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Joey Wendle will receive the start at shortstop for Game 1 of the doubleheader. Adames had a nice return from the All-Star break as he recorded a multi-hit game with a double and an RBI in the Rays' 16-4 thrashing of the Orioles on Friday night. Look for Adames to be back at his normal starting role at short in the second game of the day.

Rays' Willy Adames: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Orioles, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

He is hitting .216 with 15 strikeouts over his last 10 games, but also has three home runs over that stretch. Joey Wendle starts at second base while Michael Brosseau gets the nod at the keystone.

Rays' Willy Adames: Shows some pop in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Adames connected for his 10th homer of the season in the seventh inning, launching a 406-foot shot to right field off Peter Fairbanks and extending his hitting streak to five games in the process. Adames has encouragingly managed to put together a second consecutive solid month at the plate (.274 average during June) after entering May sporting a .200 average with one homer and four RBI.

Rays' Willy Adames: Leaves yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

Adames left the yard for the second straight game, slugging a 423-foot solo shot off reliever Trevor May in the seventh inning. Despite some inconsistency at the plate, the 23-year-old clearly still has some pop in his bat and is batting .253/.318/.402 with nine home runs, 23 RBI and 33 runs.

Rays' Willy Adames: Posts eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-2 with a solo home run in a 9-4 loss against the Twins on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has been very inconsistent lately. He posted a five-game hitting streak last week, but after going 3-for-4 on Friday, Adames went 0-for-7 over the next two games. The multi-hit game Tuesday, though, has his average back above .250. He is hitting .253 with eight home runs, 22 RBI, 32 runs and three steals in 257 at-bats this season.

Rays' Willy Adames: Swats seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 5-3 win over the A's.

The shortstop also came up big in the field, throwing out Khris Davis at home in the sixth inning with a strong relay when the Oakland slugger attempted to score from first on a Jurickson Profar double. Adames is now slashing .254/.317/.387 on the year with seven homers, three steals, 21 RBI and 31 runs through 70 games.

Rays' Willy Adames: Getting breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Utility man Joey Wendle will check into the starting nine in Adames' stead, batting seventh while manning shortstop in the series finale. Given that he's put together a middling .242/.308/.368 slash line on the season, Adames' hold on an everyday role could begin to slip now that Wendle -- one of the majors' top-producing rookies in 2018 -- is back to full health after an extended absence.

Rays' Willy Adames: Swipes home plate in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk, a steal of home and a run in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

Adames accomplished the rare swipe of home plate in the fourth inning after a walk. The speedy shortstop initially went from first to third on a Kevin Kiermaier single and the Rays subsequently pulled off the double steal. Adames' run-scoring single in the ninth also brought the Rays to within a run before the comeback fizzled. The multi-hit effort was Adames' fourth of June and also snapped a brief 0-for-8 slump that had encompassed his previous two games.

Rays' Willy Adames: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Athletics, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

He'll be rested in favor of Daniel Robertson, who will start at shortstop and bat ninth. Adames has gone 1-for-16 with nine strikeouts and two walks over his last four starts.

Rays' Willy Adames: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Tigers.

Adames took Daniel Stumpf deep in the eighth inning to record his sixth homer of the season. He's riding a hitting streak of eight games, four of which have been multi-hit efforts. Adames entered May hitting just .200 but has improved his line to .256/.321/.402 across 219 plate appearances for the campaign.

Rays' Willy Adames: Blasts grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 9-6 loss to the Tigers.

Adames was without an extra-base hit in his previous 32 at-bats, but Tuesday's grand slam was a no-doubter as he hit it 427 feet to left-center field. The 23-year-old is slashing .253/.317/.389 with five home runs, 26 runs scored and 17 RBI in 53 games.

Rays' Willy Adames: Much improved in May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames, who went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a win over the Twins on Friday, hit .284 (25-for-88) with five doubles, three home runs, nine RBI, 10 walks, Friday's steal and 11 runs during May.

Adames finished April with an ugly .200/.265/.300 line, but he started to boost those numbers as soon as the calendar flipped. The young shortstop ultimately netted a 42-point increase in his average during May and also upped his on-base and slugging percentages considerably. With nine doubles, Adames has already exceeded the seven doubles he slugged in 35 additional games last season, and he also laced the first three-bagger of his career during the current campaign.

Rays' Willy Adames: Comes through in extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-5 with a game-winning RBI single and a walk in an extra-innings victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Adames' single to deep center with the bases loaded in the 11th won the game for the Rays and produced his first RBI over the last six games. Adames' .237 season average still has plenty of room for improvement, but he's been markedly better with the bat this month while raising that figure a total of 37 points since the calendar flipped to May.

Rays' Willy Adames: Belts fourth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with a home run, double and two runs scored in Thursday's 7-2 victory over the Indians.

Adames was a triple shy of the cycle after registering a solo home run, a double and a single off starter Adam Plutko. Despite some struggles at the plate this year, the 23-year-old now has four home runs, three of which came in the last six games. His line improves to .245/.315./.395 with eight doubles, 24 runs scored and 11 RBI.

Rays' Willy Adames: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

Adames' 342-foot shot to right was the second of two homers in the second inning for the Rays. The 23-year-old shortstop has been enjoying a successful May after getting his season off to a slow start, with Sunday's production representing his fourth multi-hit effort of the month and pushing his average over that span to an impressive .311.

Rays' Willy Adames: Another productive day at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run in a win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Adames was the only member of the Rays to reach base more than twice in the low-scoring win. The young shortstop's .236/.319/.333 line still has plenty of room for improvement, but he's offering fantasy owners some reason for optimism at the moment. Factoring in Wednesday's production, Adames is hitting .333 (11-for-33) with three doubles, three RBI, seven walks and six runs over the 10 May contests for which he's suited up, raising his season average 36 points in the process.

Rays' Willy Adames: Checks out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Adames will take a seat for the third time in May, even though he's seemingly turned a corner at the dish this month. Through eight contests, Adames has gone 10-for-28 with three extra-base hits (all doubles) and a 5:8 BB:K. Daniel Robertson will fill in for Adames at shortstop in the series finale.

Rays' Willy Adames: On base thrice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run in a win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Adames' numbers are back to trending in the right direction after a brief late-April slide. The young shortstop is 7-for-17 with a double, two RBI, two walks and four runs over the first five games he's suited up for in May, raising his average 34 points to .234 in the process. However, the 23-year-old's .299 on-base percentage still has plenty of room for improvement, with the current 49-point disparity between that number and last year's .348 figure at least partly tied to Adames' reduced patience at the dish.
